One thought on “Cross River: Boki Youths Poised To End Recurrent Crisis In Boki Communities

  1. Yes we need to push very hard to eliminate communal conflicts particularly those emanating from land rights in Boki as well as struggle to kill cultism in the area.

    However the two issues must be treated separately. Its is simple! our leaders of Boki must stand up for truth on the issues of land rights and boundaries. Where issues exist on matters of land rights and boundaries those from affected communities willing to speak the truth must not be suppressed for selfish reasons.

    People should be encourage to speak out even against their communities in getting to the truth. History must be referred to in reaching the truth on boundary matters because people still have facts on boundaries between communities but they are being suppressed.

    On cultism, nobody should be qualified to discuss the way forward for cultism when your son, your daughter, your brother, your daughter is a cultist and you are too cowardly to confront him or her to desist.

    Its no secret that we all know the cultists and we pretend not to know. If you can’t severe your relationship with your dad, son, brother, sister or any relation who is a cultist, please don’t talk about. The world is watching and definately God is seeing you.
